Complete the puzzle - then play the game! The completed jigsaw puzzle makes a board game for 2 to 4 players based on the story of Nellie Bly - a 25-year-old journalist who set sail from New York in 1889 in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe in less than 80 days. Traveling by ship, train, rickshaw, sampan, horse, camel, and burro, she returned to a cheering crowd in under seventy-three days. Bly's stories about the people and lands she encountered en route were published in The New York World. Touted as the most famous woman on Earth as a result of this adventure, Nellie Bly was an inspiration to women during an era when marriage or a menial job was considered their only appropriate option.

Includes: 300 piece puzzle with extra large pieces, measures 24" x 18" when complete. Game includes 4 wooden playing pieces, 1 wooden die and instruction booklet with the story of Nellie Bly.

Having the Nellie Bly game to play after putting the puzzle together was very fun. The puzzle is easy enough to put together in a few hours, less with company. Then you can play this game from the 1890's! The brief bio included with the game instructions gives you some history and makes it even more fun. I recomment reading, "Eighty Days: Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland's History-making Race around the World" by Matthew Goodman if you are interested in Nellie Bly's history.
